Knox College grad donates $2 million

From the Peoria Journal Star:

A Knox College graduate has endowed $2 million to start a religion and culture program.

“Making the gift now gives me the pleasure and honor of helping Knox to establish a full-fledged religion and culture program during my lifetime.”

That’s how the graduate, who wishes to remain anonymous, explained her generosity last month to Knox President Roger Taylor when making the endowment for a Distinguished Chair for the Study of Religion and Culture

“It gave me chills,” Taylor said. “Because she has made her gift now, the college can begin right away to seek an experienced professor for the new position.”
